Girl on FIRE Podcast

with Priya Karan

Girl on FIRE Podcast

Girl on FIRE is a podcast helping women navigate their way through financial independence and retiring early. We talk about how to invest, what to invest in and how to grow your wealth so that you can continue living a life you love without going broke - even in retirement. We also discuss the unique issues and challenges that we face as women when building real wealth. Weekly episodes are hosted by budgeting and personal finance expert, Priya Rose Valentine. With over a decade of experience working as a finance professional, she's sharing what she learns on her own journey to FIRE. Finally, an investing podcast for women, by women! 


Hey there, I'm Priya!

And I don't want to just pay the bills and die.

Paper Money Co - Priya

When I first started budgeting, I didn't know what I was doing. 

I wanted to actually live my life and not just exist to pay the bills. But when I looked online for help, I ended up more confused, frustrated and overwhelmed than ever!

Everywhere I looked I was told to follow baby steps and 'just stop spending money'. But that isn't how money works. So, I came up with my own system to understand and take control of my money.

Amazingly, it worked! I paid off $30,000 in student debt, saved over $100,000 towards my goals and grew my net worth to 6-figures - all while supporting our family on a single small income. 

I was in control of my money and in control of my life. Then I started Paper Money Co to teach other women how to take control of their finances and live the life you were meant to live.

Awesome podcast

Priya breaks down everything and makes it so easy to understand. She makes you really believe retiring early is possible for you too! One of my top 5 podcast!

She is very genuine and transparent

This podcast has been a game changer for me during my journey to financial freedom. She is very genuine and transparent about the mindset that it takes to achieve FIRE. I love her passion for helping women become financially independent and it really shows through all the amazing resources she provides. Her budget worksheet helped me start on the right path to get there. I like the she loves to get feedback from her listeners so that she can generate content they want to see or hear in the future! I personally have recommended her podcast to so many of my female friends and even promoted in my non-profit organisation.

Can't wait for more!

Finally someone with the credentials and experience with money to back up what they say, really good start and can’t wait for more. Shared the podcast with my wife as she always says there isn’t any female specific advice out there and she was pleasantly surprised. Keep it up because we are both listening!

Solid financial advice

Even though I'm a bit older (47) than your average listeners, I'm a total noob when it comes to investing, financial freedom and am very far away from FIRE at the moment. BUT, I hope that will change sooner than later thanks to Priya and all the wonderful advice she's giving on this podcast. She's covering all the bases (read: basics) and is also giving away tools that will help build our financial independence. Keep it up Priya, 5 stars for you!

You’re truly a blessing to all women

Your podcasts popped up on my phone a few days ago and I’m catching up, I’m already on episode 17! I absolutely love it. You’re truly a blessing to all women who are wondering stuff and you’re so mindful towards everything. Thank you for all you do!

Back to the basics!

I love that she starts her podcast with going over basic information like credit cards and budgeting! A lot of people don't even implement those basic things into their life. Then she starts getting into more advanced info like basic investing and financial independence numbers. Can't wait to see what else she puts out!

3 Insider Secrets to Financial Success

How to budget your way to 6-figures like a pro and live a life you love (without having to give up your latte!)

My mission


When a woman is in control of her money, she's in control of her life. She has the power to change her  life and live on her terms. She has the power to change the lives of those she loves and those around her. And, she has the power to make a difference and change the world. That's why I'm a firm believer that financial empowerment and education should be available to all women. Let's close the gender wealth gap, one woman at a time. So that you can live the life you were meant to live.

professional tools

I'm not just someone who plays with spreadsheets. I'm a Chartered Accountant and an Analyst with years of education and experience in finance. I believe in being the best at what I do, so that I can make the best  products for my customers.

eco-friendly

You can go 100% digital with my products and save some trees. Or, if you prefer to print on demand, you won't be paying for packaging or shipping which reduces your carbon footprint.

quality tested

All the financial tools I've designed have come from personal necessity. That means I've road-tested each of them in my own life, so I know how life changing they are.

great value for money

I'm a firm believer that women everywhere deserve to be financially empowered. You don't have to be wealthy to have access to financial education and the right tools.
